succession of a unsuitable property
28/05/2011 3:21 pm
i have just suc succeeded my fathers tenancy wich is a secure one.
but the ha (peabody trust) are saying that it is unsuitable .
the reasons are .that it is a three bedroom house and has had a lift fitted.
i have spoke to a lettings officer and explained that i am married and my son is at uni and that he will be moving with me later this year so it would only be under occupied by one bedroom wich is allowed .
with the lift matter i also explained that i was off work for four years with a bad back but have returned to work but sometimes my back is bad and the lift would be good for me and i can also provide a doctors letter supporting this .
they dont want to listen to any of this and have said since i got the tennancy it is only in my name end of story so with the lift and three bedrooms case they want me to move to another property.
my father was in this property since 1974 , it has been a family home since .
i have told them to take me to court as i have read that the judge looks at the case on the court day and could be in my favour .
any comments please and also sorry if this is a bit jumbled but if you ask i will try and answer any questions ..thank you
